When there is a sudden outbreak of mysterious murders in the Texas Big Bend country, a young drifter new to the area, played by John Barrymore, is the prime suspect. Captured and held for the murders, the rancher who is holding Barrymore does not realize that he has been set up to take the fall for these murders by some men who were thought to have been killed years before in a range war. Now these despicable men are back and are getting their own revenge on those who were involved in the range war which left them wounded.

this was one good western and I am not a fan of westerns but there's an actual plot and the main characters are excellent actors, Wills does the best I've ever seen him do and he has more talent than I knew.
The Big Bend area is spectacular once the Summer and Fall is over but probably hell when it's hot. The skies in this movie are Winter skies.
The only disappointment for me was the parts of the film shot at night. They're almost black in this print so any nuances are lost, otherwise it's great!
